Ala Wai Golf Course - The World's Busiest!Posted by Mike Bates on Saturday, October 15th, 2011 at 1:27pm.
Did you know that this public golf course on the outskirts of Waikiki is the busiest in the world? And being a municipal course the green fees are pretty reasonable.
Walking the course and playing 18 holes cost just $49. If you apply for and obtain a golf card, the fee for 18 holes is $22 on weekends and holidays, $18 on weekdays.
How does one get a golf card? Well first you must be a Hawaii resident with evidence to prove it. More info can be found here.
History of the Ala Wai Golf Course
This land area was a territorial fair grounds in the early 1900's. In 1923, it started off as a single hole. A year later, three more holes were built for a total of four and it was named Territorial Fairgrounds Golf Course. At that point the Ala Wai Canal was still being dredged.
By 1931 five more holes were designed and it became a nine hole course. It was renamed the Ala Wai Golf Course.
Nine more holes opened in 1937 and the Ala Wai became an 18 hole course. In 1948 a clubhouse was built.
The State of Hawaii owns the Ala Wai Golf Course land and it's operated by the City and County of Honolulu.
